    Very nice. Is that a scanned reversal? What was your exposure time on that? I think I will try one of those paper shots to show you what my lens is looking like. I'd like to see it myself actually. I have one of those Rockland kits at home now, but have not had a chance to use it yet. Thanks Dan

    The image is a scan of the paper negative using a cheap Epson flatbed - 3170 photo. It''s a 1 second exposure through the rear cell only of a 1908 240mm Dagor. I think it was f16 on the scale so around f28. I expose the paper as ASA 3.

    Dan, sometime in the future and if you haven't already, you might try a yellow filter on the taking lens. It will surely extend your exposure time, but I have been shooting paper negatives in my 8x10 and noticed that blue skies were always overexposed. After testing with a yellow filter the clouds started to emerge, and the paper negatives started to resemble normal negatives. I was even able to pull detail out of the shadows that previously had eluded me when no filter was used. I'm still testing this method, but thought I'd mention.

    Yes, one or two yellow filters have always been reccomended for ortho film, but if you like the pre 1900 look shoot without, as the non-corrected plates and film used then would not respond to a filter. And, by the way, ortho is the normal film. Pan is johnny come lately.

    Hello Dennis
    Good to read what you say. I like std. lens for any cameras I use. I have just got an 8 x 10 back for my Sinar P. I am told I can use my 210mm lens on the 8 x 10.
    Do you use your 14inch 355mm lens indoors and out?
    Any examples of your work that I can see?

    If you don't mind messing around a little on the cheap, try the "99c 325mm f3.5 single element" design... That is a $0.99 magnifying glass set in a piece of black mat board. Mark Sawyer has a thread over at LF on these. I assembled one of these and cut a few DIY apertures down to f42. My nearest "real" lens is a 203 Ektar, which severely cuts the corners at infinity. Here is a shot from last night of a paper negative stopped down to f42 using a 5x7 back, but it easily covers 8x10 and beyond. [IMG][/IMG]

    This is certainly enough to help me get my feet wet with 8x10 until providence (or my loving wife) drops a more suitable lens in my lap.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    I would like to know if anyone has used a 210mm lens with an 8 x 10 film format Sinar P.

    If yes...any examples for me to look at?

    What settings did you find successful?

    Thank you.

    Schneider Symnar 5.6/300mm lens

    Hello. I am looking to buy my first lens for an 8 x 10 Sinar P camera. Will the above lens be good to purchase?
    Ideally I want a lens to use in a studio setting (figures and portraits) and also out in the field = landscape.
    If I could use it for both that would be very convenient for me. I like to keep it simple.
